Why Choose Us?

The organisation believes that in order to make informed decisions, researchers, governments, multigovernmental organisations, and other non-state actors require geopolitical and security awareness. This knowledge helps these bodies to manage risks and make informed decisions, such as which research topics to prioritise, which allies to align with, which communities to safeguard and which markets to explore. As a result, the G.I. ADVISORY provides experience-based and research-focused advice and services to academics, governments, and NGOs.

The following are the major services we provide:

  • Researcher Development
  • Defence and Security
  • Forced Migration
